Like the children in my class, your preschooler is probably already learning to recognize and write his letters.
“Did You Ever Sign Your ABCs?” is a fun alphabet rhyming song that uses American Sign Language (ASL) to provide young children with a hands-on way to learn the letters of the alphabet.
Since many of the ASL hand symbols resemble the shape of letters in the written alphabet, learning the ASL manual alphabet can give children a boost in their learning with this new skill set. Young children who learn how to turn their fingers into easy words like C-A-T and continue to practice finger spelling as they grow often have an edge when it comes to spelling.
Included is a memory jogger resources sheet. These mnemonic phases will help teachers, parents and children to remember how to make the hand-shapes. These joggers are just reminders to help you remember how to make the sign.
